National Walking Horse Association announces new Executive Director

Lexington, Ky. (December 22, 2008) – The National Walking Horse Association (NWHA) today announced the appointment of Vanessa D. Crowe as the organization’s new executive director. She will assume the position January 2, 2009.

With more than 35 years of marketing and equine industry experience, Vanessa brings extensive knowledge and skills that will contribute to NWHA’s growth. In her most recent position as executive director of United Mountain Horse, Inc., she oversaw a significant increase in membership. During that seven-year-tenure, Vanessa managed shows, judging and DQP programs and developed and integrated programs, publications, national and regional promotions and educational venues for the organization.

“Many qualified candidates expressed interest in NWHA and in the position. Vanessa’s energy, experience and deep knowledge of the equine industry and of the gaited horse set her apart. These qualities are assets that, when combined with the momentum we’ve built over the past few years, will help NWHA achieve its position as one of the premier equine associations,” says Lori Snyder-Lowe, president of NWHA. “I am confident that her fresh approach will serve NWHA and its members well and propel it to the next level of financial and membership growth.”

The daughter of a Walking Horse trainer and an accomplished equestrian in her own right, Crowe has spent her life around Walking Horses appreciating the natural athleticism and shares NWHA’s values and mission.

“It is an honor to become part of this esteemed organization and a privilege to serve as executive director,” says Crowe. “NWHA has enjoyed steady progress and continues to remain true to its vision. I plan to continue both, but also further the growth of the organization by positioning the naturally gaited Walking Horse as a breed of merit, and NWHA as the leading organization dedicated to the breed.”
